    Directional: high level of dopamine can lead to schizophrenia
    Non-directional: dopamine levels is associated with SZ
    In directional you state what you think the link between the two are but in non-directional you just state that there's a link

    Can someone help me with peer review? The purpose of it and evaluative points pretty please?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Purpose of peer review -
    The aim of the peer review process is to act as a kind of quality control. It helps to ensure that any research paper published in a well-respected journal is of high quality and valid, and it can therefore be taken seriously by fellow researchers by lay people. Any research that is incorrect or of poor quality is weeded out. Only the best becomes public. Peer review has been used since the middle of the twentieth century and has now become the focal point to the way science is conducted. it is the way that new knowledge becomes validated

    Strengths -
    - Peer review is essential as without it readers of published research would not know what is mere opinion and speculation, and what is real fact. It is a means of establishing the validity of scientific research.
    - It is difficult for authors and researchers to spot every mistake in a piece of work so showing work to others increases the probability that weaknesses will be identified and addressed.
    - It helps to prevent the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, personal views and deliberate fraud.

    Limitations -
    - It isn't always possible to find an appropriate expert to review a research proposal/report. This means that poor research may be passed because the reviewer didn't really understand it.
    - Anonymity is usually practised so that reviewers may be honest and objective. However it may have the opposite effect if reviewers use anonymity to settle 'old scores' or bury rival research.
    - The reviewer's theoretical view may differ from that in the research report so they may judge it less favourably.
    - There may be institution bias (tendency to favour research from prestigious institutions)
    - There may be gender bias (tendency to favour male researchers)
    - There may be publication bias as peer review tends to favour the publication of positive results (results supporting the hypothesis), possibly because editors want research that has important implications in order to increase the standing of their journal.

    155 ums would be needed for an A,
    so lets say you need 78 on each paper.
    So from last years boundaries that means you need in raw marks:
    44/72 in PSYA3
    56/83 in PSYA4
    Thankyou so much!!
